Husband and Wife

For the purpose of joint returns, common-law marriages are recognized only if the state in which the two persons reside recognizes such marriages or if the state in which the marriage began recognizes common-law marriages. The status as husband and wife on the last day of the tax year governs the right to file a joint return.
